From Years & Years upcoming debut album, ‘Communion’, comes new single, ‘Shine’.
2015 has seen Olly, Emre and Mikey burst into the spotlight as one of 2015’s most exciting prospects.
Recent single, ‘King’ gave the band their first #1 single in the UK, and the track also charted in the top 10 in Australia, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Holland.
With their new offering ‘Shine’ – Years & Years look set to fulfil the BBC’s Sound of 2015 prophecy where they topped the list (previous winners include bot Sam Smith and Adele). And with ‘Communion’ their brand of luminous electro-pop will firmly establish them as the most exciting UK band to emerge in recent years.
‘Shine’ begins with driving beats and dreamy R&B harmonies and then morphs into a full-throttle dance number, gloriously capturing the butterflies-in-the-belly thrill of falling in love. “The metaphor of ‘shine’ and ‘shining’ comes from the way somebody can make you feel totally brand-new and special and re-made in the light of their love, but how that can feel incredibly unstable and overwhelming and make you want to destroy yourself,” explains frontman and keyboardist, Olly Alexander.
